The Blacklist Will Stick Around for a Second SeasonNBC’s most-watched new dramatic series, The Blacklist, has just been renewed for a second season. According to the network, The Blacklist starring James Spader is the number one new drama among the major networks for viewers in the 18-49 age group. Its popularity has earned the series a 22 episode second season order.
“The success of The Blacklist demonstrates that inspired storytelling is alive and well in broadcast television, and I’m impressed on a daily basis by this creative team’s imagination and the extent to which they will go to capture this grand vision on film,” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. “With gratitude to both our partners at Sony Pictures Television and our NBC development executives who took a great script and shepherded it into a great series, I hope that Red Reddington never runs out of names to bring down on his list!”
“We are very proud of the creative achievements of The Blacklist, starting with creator Jon Bokenkamp and his incredible producing partners John Eisendrath, John Davis, John Fox and Michael Watkins,” added NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. “Our hats are off to them and to everyone in our dream cast — starting with the incomparable James Spader and Megan Boone — and our maverick pilot director, Joe Carnahan, and all of the gifted writers, producers, and directors who bring this cinematic show to life each week.”
The series stars Emmy Award winner James Spader as “Red” Reddington, a world-renown terrorist on the FBI’s Most Wanted List who is helping the U.S. government catch international criminals, but for unknown reasons.
